guest: the koppers have a long history here in the u.s. and they can be in different forms. they can be owned by the members themselves and they use their strength as a group to purchase goods or services and the cooperatives of that would be formed across the united states would act in the very same way as they do today. i informed rural illinois and we are very familiar with cooperatives as individuals come together as groups. americans think of themselves as the rugged individualists, but actually, we join groups all the time. and the cooperatives give the power of groups to the individual. i think that it can bring competition to the health care sector. we need greater competition. but we need greater choices for individuals. and that is what i think cooperative's done correctly will do. a cartel, on the other hand, is controlled by the suppliers and their monopolistic -- and they are monopolistic and they do not serve to enhance competition. cartels killed competition. we ought to be careful about the real language that is being used. kecoughtahost: it sounds like ot c
